I have started to make this Slytherin hat using a graph and looking at how to make a snake. My golden snitches stitch markers are a great help. Stay tuned, this will be in color stranding as well.
Thought I will model it for ya! Ready for my wizardry duties! Made on US 6 circulars, with Wool of the Andes and Andean SIlk from Knit picks. Isn't it cute lol! The hat that is!
I just wanted to show you the backside of this hat. Color stranding is not a hard technique to do, but it is a very detail oriented technique. You have to pay attention to what you are doing or you will end up with a new pattern lol! I am looking toward finishing this hat by the weekend. Even though It looks tight, the material has a great flexibility.
This is my first real attempt at color stranding with a design that is more than just a checkered board. Let's see what happens today when I tackle the main are with the Norwegian Star design.
I just wanted to share my FO of the Honorable Ravenclaw House Scarf. I will be making another hat for this scarf . This is one of my Christmas Gifts to myself. Shhh!
I just got into Ravelry and wanted to let you guys Know! Fun place to be!
I joined the men who knit group there and others. I will look you up! It took about a month or so to get in!
This is a video of my work in progress and the results of my last swap - exchange which I received today and some miscellaneous stuff.
I took a little break from my knitting to do some crochet and continue the Ravenclaw hat.
Just wanted to share the work in progress progress.. I am hoping to finsh this scarf next week. You can see the orange markers are where the stitch is actually slipped.
